Italian reggae artiste Alborosie gets a little help from his colleagues on Specialist Presents Alborosie & Friends, a double album released in June by Greensleeves Records. The set hears Alborosie working with a number of acts including reggae great Dennis Brown, Steel Pulse and Etana. The Sicily-born singer has been recording in Jamaica since the late 1990s when he first visited the country. His biggest hits include ‘Kingston Town’ and ‘Jah Jah Blessing’. The latter, done with Etana, is his most popular song in reggae land. On ‘Specialist Presents’, he reworks classic hits by Steel Pulse (‘Stepping Out’) and Brown (‘I Can’t Stand It’).
